Millie Bobby Brown penned a heartfelt tribute to her grandmother, who succumbed to her battle with Alzheimer’s disease.
The Stranger Things star shared a video of her gran as she revealed the sad news Tuesday on Instagram.
“There’s no words that make sense right now. There’s no feeling to pin point,” she began. “Loss is something so complex aand I go thru spells where I cant stop crying and then I laugh about all the memories and then sit quiet and try to comprehend what happened.”
Millie Bobby Brown called Alzheimer’s “cruel” and “evil”. “Taking away someones ability to remember memories and then how to function like a human being. Its so hard to sit there and watch.”
“i’ll always be your millie moos. I hope u watch over me and protect me like u did when I was little,” the 16-year-old continued. “I loved you more than anyone could ever love. Ill tell everyone about you and the lessons u taught me. Ill thank you every day for the laughs and memories u gave me all through out my life so far.”
Millie went on to share some sweet memories of hers with her grandmother. She recalled her stays at “nanny Ruth’s house”, the food her nanny cooked her and all that they did together. “I usually sang to her or we’d figure out some cross word puzzle as I sat on her lap,” she added. “Midnight would come and we would lay in bed and she’d tell me stories about her memories as a child and what living through World War 2 was like.”
Further, The Enola Holmes actress expressed her regret for not being able to meet her gran during her final days due to the coronavirus.
“I couldn’t come home to give u one last snuggle because of Covid-19 so FaceTime was all that we had. I sang to you as much as my voice could take it, even when u were sleeping,” Millie wrote.
“These are memories ill never forget. She is truly my guardian angel. I love you nanny. Theres no forgetting a soul like this one. I hope time will somewhat heal. But for now ill hug mummy and watch videos of us singing and dancing. Rest easy,” she concluded her post.
Millie’s friends and colleagues offered their condolences in the comments.
“Rest easy nanny ❤️❤️,” her Stranger Things co-star Noah Schnapp wrote.
